Blue Fly

Blue Fly

Blue Fly (2001)

As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods;
They kill us for their sport.
--Shakespeare, King Lear

What's the buzz? Well, the sad insect in today's image won't be lonely...

From ABC News:

The U.S. Army has plans to keep the current level of soldiers in Iraq through 2010, the top Army officer said Wednesday, a later date than Bush administration or Pentagon officials have mentioned thus far.

The Fly

To hear all those prayers
God would have to be
A fly with as many ears
As eyes to disentangle all views.

When the tribe assembles,
All the votes are counted,
But only one may speak
And only one may dream.

Among the ancients, flies
Were called "little gods,"
Because only they cared for
Or visited the corpses.

Disseminating the plague,
Or tasting each dish for poison,
Wherever flies land becomes
A Turkish Delight.

[Disposable Poem October 13, 2006]
